White Sox Announce Three Roster Moves

Prior to tonight's series opener at Texas, the Chicago White Sox announced the following three roster moves:

· Recalled right-handed pitcher Miguel Gonzalez from Class AAA Charlotte.

· Designated catcher Hector Sanchez for assignment.

· Returned catcher Alex Avila from his injury rehab assignment at Charlotte and reinstated him from the 15-day disabled list.

Gonzalez, 31, is scheduled to start tonight's game at the Rangers. He received a no decision in his only start this season on April 25 at Toronto, allowing five runs on 11 hits with six strikeouts over 5.1 IP. Gonzalez has gone 1-0 with a 2.65 ERA (5 ER/17.0 IP) and 18 strikeouts over four starts with the Knights this season.

Avila, 29, appeared in three rehab games with Charlotte. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 24 with a strained right hamstring. Avila is hitting .214 (6-28) over 10 games this season, his first with the White Sox.

Sanchez, 26, has appeared in two games in 2016, batting .143 (1-7) with one RBI. He hit .143 (4-28) with two homer and three RBI in eight games with the Knights.

Following the moves, the White Sox 40-man roster decreases to 37.
